Dumping on Gabby Giffords is not a pleasant thing to do. So let's not.
But why should we cut breaks for political ghouls using this mentally-diminished woman to gut America by disarming all citizens who did not wound her and kill six other people?
She will be on your teevee tonight, in paid commercials sandwiching Obama's annual paean to Obama. Her handlers would probably just as soon ignore Ms. Giffords one-time delight in center-massing a a nice-looking boy's image with her assault rifle.
Sure, he's pointing his own weapon at her, but maybe he meant merely to shoot the M16 (AR15?) out of her hands. So she chould have just shot him in the leg.
